    I cannot contain my enthusiasm for this amazing lens!!
    Mounted on my G1, it reminds me of my old Contax G1, with its 45mm prime; but the IQ of this new combo is even better!!
    The improvement over the already good 14-45 and 45-200 is astounding!!
    You're right, I LOVE my new 20!!...it has found a permanent home on the G1.
    Hope you enjoy this sampling ( more in my galleries ).

    I don't think I would be into this camera format (or into cameras again in general) if it wasn't for the 20mm. It's light, it's small and it's fast...especially for indoor low-light situations. Have fun with your's.

    I rarely take the 20mm of my G1, I try and use the 9-18 more but I always end up back with the 20, it can't be beaten at street level, imo.

    Hi Gus...I am amazed at the DOF considering they were shot at f3.5 (the exterior shots) so yes, it appears to be a good choice. Thanks for posting and I am so familiar with all the locations....great city isn't it!!
